Things are looking a little scary these days. Since the election, over 700 hate crimes against racial minorities, LGBT people, and Muslims have been reported. With the new government coming in January, things are looking pretty bleak for those that would be victims of hate. In these sorts of times, when maybe we can’t rely on the government to help stop hate groups, we need to turn to those who have been fighting them all along. I want to talk to you guys about the Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC is a nonprofit that works to help further the causes of Civil Rights in the south. Often they do this with public interest litigation, to fight hate groups where they show up around the country. They are known for victories against white supremacist groups, and with groups like them actually on the rise, we might need to tap them in before long.
